One thought on “NRL Teams Round 24, 2009”

  1. I’d like to comment on the performance of the Brisbane Broncos who made a huge come back last week…As a fan from Papua New Guinea i was so fascinated by the way they played…Terrific and absolutely super…
    Keep it up and belt the hell out of the Dragons this Friday…
